How'd you find the exam? Share your thoughts here
ooh, your story sounds really good. kinda sounds like an x-files/supernatural parallel thing. also, sooo jealous you got to do crime writing. i really wanted that ):I did Crime Writing, Elective 2 of Module A and thought it was fine. The essay was fine, the creative gave us a quote and asked us to use it at the beginning of a character's reflection on an important point in their life, but it didn't say it had to be at the start of the piece so I put it in way later.
I think I'm gonna confuse my marker because my crime story was about a guy with a memory problem who witnesses the same crime by the same criminal 17 times and never remembers until the police question him at the end, and by then he feels terrible, and that's what the quote was about "I'm a modern day villain... if only I'd done it differently." So my first booklet is almost exactly repeated in the next booklet XD but everything changed in the last booklets and it all made sense, so I'm hoping it goes alright.
With the essay I found myself paraphrasing scrutiny simply because I hadn't come across the word before in an exam and was worried BOS would think I didn't know what it meant. Overall I'm pretty happy.
Thanks It's the same story I used for belonging and Ext 2, except originally it was never a crime story. It was just a dude who plays music around texas and never remembers where he's going or where he's been, and he meets this girl in this bar he keeps visiting and playing in, and never remembers her even though she remembers him, and one day he wakes up in her apartment and that's when he realises he's got a memory problem. Before today I had no exams since Paper 2 so I spent 11 days working out how to make it a crime story, and I'm hoping it paid off.ooh, your story sounds really good. kinda sounds like an x-files/supernatural parallel thing. also, sooo jealous you got to do crime writing. i really wanted that ):
What elective did you do?For the essay did you need to include techniques, I had only 2 techniques in the whole thing. By how much will this affect my mark?
